Eighty-eight golfers turned out in support of Keepmoat’s annual charity golf day to raise funds for Tŷ Hafan.

A total of 22 teams took part in the Keepmoat charity golf day on Tuesday, July 8thth in a bid to raise £6,000. The event raised £8,000 for the Tŷ Hafan hospice which cares for children with life limiting illnesses in Wales, over £1,500 more than last year.

The Tŷ Hafan hospice, which is located in Sully, South Glamorgan between Cardiff and Barry needs to raise £3.7m million a year to provide care and support to life-limited families in Wales.

Keepmoat held the event, as the firm is currently working within close proximity to the charity where they are currently delivering Welsh Housing Quality Standards (WHQS) works.

Alison Stallard, Head of Business and Community Fundraising at Tŷ Hafan said: “Keepmoat have been tremendous supporters of Tŷ Hafan for many years.

“We are really pleased that the annual golf day was such a success and the fantastic amount raised will make such a difference to support our work with life-limited children and their families from across Wales.”

Keepmoat’s Project Manager Steve Locke said: “I’m pleased that the event was a success and we hope to be able to donate an even higher figure in 2015!

“The hospice is really close to our site and we believe it’s important for us to support local charities like Tŷ Hafan, which contribute so much to the area. We hope to continue our relationship with this incredible organisation.”
